The bestselling epic breaks new ground

After the events of Sons of the Oak, Fallion and Jaz, the sons of the great Earth King Gaborn, are living as fugitives in their own kingdom, newly invaded and secretly controlled by supernatural being of ultimate evil. The sons are hiding until they can regain their rightful places in the land.

Evil is certainly still the same, and may have influenced this for a terrible purpose.
